Good to know.
In Elements 10 there is a feature to add vignetting, so how bad can it be if sometimes you want to add it for effect.
I've been playing with my new lens all evening trying to understand just how it works.
I notice that when I used Aperture Priority set to f/1.8 the camera selected 1/60th - I have my SB 700 attached. When I go to Shutter Priority I can dial it up to 1/200th and the aperture stays at 1.8. With preschool children I think I best use the fastest shutter speed. Even shooting my wife's lapdogs for practice the 1/60th setting did give me several shots that had motion blur.
I put a couple of my shots into my gallery and post them here.
